He is the Barack Obama of football, a fresh-faced comer whose rapid rise has put him smack in the crosshairs of Baltimore's coaching search. Three years after retiring as a player, is Jason Garrett ready to run the Ravens? Those who know the Dallas Cowboys' offensive coordinator say he is. Garrett, a Princeton graduate, has the smarts, the savvy, the winning smile. He knows when to teach - and when to learn. He is, they say, the brain without the Brian. See the clipboard in his hand?

IRVING, Texas -- Quarterback Bernie Kosar didn't want to talk about vindication.He didn't want to talk about how satisfying it was to come off the bench to save the Dallas Cowboys' 38-21 NFC title game victory over the San Francisco 49ers yesterday after the Cleveland Browns dumped him earlier this year because he had "diminished skills.""After such a great win like this and with the [Super Bowl] game only seven days away, now is not the time to reflect back on the Cleveland situation," he said.

AFTER encouraging rallies last month, the stock and bond markets have stalled. Major stock indexes remain in negative territory for 2005. Forecasts of second-quarter corporate profits are bland. Trading activity appears to be in the summer doldrums. All eyes on Wall Street have shifted from stock prices to interest rates. This is alien territory for most individual investors, but here's a tip: We're all bond traders now. Home-buying is the critical element. The outlook for long-term interest rates, which determine home mortgages, is the bottom line of the investment picture.

ATLANTA -- Quarterback Bernie Kosar isn't noted for his mobility on the field, but he's proving he's got some nifty moves off the field.He's spent Super Bowl week dodging leading questions by reporters.For example, he keeps getting asked if he would like to join Norv Turner next week when the Dallas Cowboys' offensive coordinator is expected to be named the Washington Redskins' head coach.Kosar's friends say he likes Washington because it has a grass field and a winning tradition. He could play while the Redskins groom a young quarterback such as Trent Dilfer or Heath Shuler.

The three-year battle between Cleveland Browns coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Bernie Kosar is over -- and Belichick is the winner.Belichick put the popular quarterback on waivers yesterday, saying that Kosar had lost his skills, but Kosar said -- and most of his teammates agree -- that Belichick felt Kosar was a threat to his control of the team.Kosar, a native of Boardman, Ohio, took the Browns to five straight playoff appearances after he joined the team in 1985, including three AFC championship games, but Belichick refused to run an offense that featured his ability to read defenses.

Dallas!Bernie Kosar is going to Dallas?I have to admit, when I heard the news, I was absolutely dumbfounded.Last time I checked, Kosar was cut by the Browns because they think Todd Philcox is better.Trust me on this. I have talked to several members of the Browns organization, and they insist owner Art Modell wasn't blowing smoke -- or smoking something he shouldn't -- when he said that virtually every Browns coach and scout considered Kosar to be kaput.They thought Kosar was so bad, they couldn't wait another month for Vinny Testaverde's shoulder to heal.

Cleveland quarterback Bernie Kosar made it clear this week he thinks the Browns' 1989 trade of running back Earnest Byner to the Washington Redskins was a bad one.Byner was traded after his fumble in the 1987 AFC championship game kept the Browns from getting to the Super Bowl, and after another bad playoff outing a year later. He became the Redskins' featured back last year, and is playing a prominent role in their 6-0 start this year.Ironically, the Browns haven't had a 100-yard runner since a 1988 game at Washington when Kevin Mack gained 116 behind Byner's blocking.

Stroke of genius or act of defiance? New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick straddled that fence last week when he made Drew Bledsoe the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL behind Tom Brady, a promising but unproven second-year player. Belichick surveyed Brady's eight NFL starts and Bledsoe's previous eight seasons and determined the Patriots' best chance to reach the playoffs this year was with the former sixth-round draft choice. Never mind that Belichick had assured Bledsoe of the opportunity to compete with Brady for the job once he had recovered from a severe chest injury in Week 2. In the win-now world of the NFL, Belichick took the hot hand and ran smack into a controversy that most likely will render him either a genius or man under fire in the coming weeks.

Leave it to Jimmy Johnson and Bill Belichick.They seem determined to add some spice to what is rapidly becoming a dull NFL season.With the Dallas Cowboys appearing to be the class of the league and with the Buffalo Bills seemingly destined to become another sacrificial Super lamb, this NFL season was becoming a bore until Johnson, the Cowboys coach, and Belichick, the Cleveland Browns coach, made Bernie Kosar the focal point of a controversy.Belichick's decision to cut Kosar and Johnson's decision to sign him 24 hours later has raised a question that is being asked around the league: Who is the real Bernie Kosar?
